A new Patient’s Medical Home Provincial Report Card from the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) indicates that BC is making progress toward implementing the Patient’s Medical Home (PMH) model of care.
The report card looks at the performance of each province based on past, current and future initiatives related to the 10 pillars in the PMH model originally developed by the CFPC.
The provinces are rated green, yellow or red for each pillar. BC showed strong (green) progress in two of the pillars – Education, Training and Research and Electronic Medical Records. For the remaining eight, our province was rated yellow, indicating that some progress has been made but more action is needed.
The CFPC gathered data for the report card in 2018. The BCCFP contributed by providing information about relevant primary care initiatives in BC, including the roll out of primary care networks (PCNs). However, it’s important to note that the report card ratings represent a snapshot in time and will change as BC continues with primary care transformation.
